A related thing-- some of these mobile ads are getting out of hand. In the last month, they have gotten bigger and slowed down my browser more. Here is an example of one...

They used to be much smaller...

Here's another one...

Not everyone wants to use a different browser and/or AdBlock.
Also, you can get AdBlock functionality system-wide in any browser and app with root.

rooting is certainly more complicated than get a simple app, beside rooting a device also nullify ur warranty, i dont' see this could be a smart move here just to block some ads by rooting ur smartphone, i would rather get firefox+adblocks, with some easy steps you can also import all bookmarks to firefox as well...

That is false. Software modifications don't void your warranty in the EU. Not to mention, just let people use the browser they want, stop being so persistent with your Firefox propaganda...

@LukeHasAWii

propaganda?? do you know what propaganda means?? so a simple give a hand becomes propaganda here?? man, u need help about ur paranoia.
Yeah, I might get an adblocker. Dont get me wrong, the temp is great, but I never press the ads so I'm not giving any money to the temp anyway... lol. I don't use Firefox because of how they handle tabs, it's a bit annoying.
(Edit: that's why I have 13 tabs in the screenshot lol)

Why such an odd choice of https://freestar.io ? (I think)
they are supposed to be much more profitable than other platforms... it seems to be proving true for now, but if it's at the expense of having video ads, popups and whatnot, I am not sure we are going to keep them! I never agreed to these formats, it was supposed to be banners only.

That's quite odd that they put in ads you didn't agree too.... have they said anything before about that?
